please click on photo to see marble relief up close
the vatican museum is filled with treasures. the grounds are kept beautifully and despite the amount of tourists that are continually filing through the halls and open air courtyards, it is fairly quiet. I wish I had photos of the sistine chapel to show you but photography was strictly prohibited. here is a piece of art that was just outside the first courtyard we passed on our way to the galleries.
